Renovated Loft in Historic Bessemer, Alabama

The Up & Up is a beautifully revitalized loft in the heart of the Bessemer Historic District. Built in 1890 by William Berney, the 2nd floor has been home to a bank, a drug store, several five and dimes, and now The Up & Up. The McLellan's building was restored in 2004 by Leigh Pate and Caterina Meadows. Their extensive restoration incorporated the building's industrial features and open floor plan. The Up & Up is a 4700-square-foot 2nd floor loft featuring exposed brick, huge pine beams, 18 foot ceilings, and a charm that makes it the perfect venue for your special event. The Up & Up is located in historic Bessemer, Alabama, one block away from the legendary Bright Star Restaurant and minutes from downtown Birmingham. Offer your guests a taste of small-town American charm and a beautiful space to create lasting memories for your special occasion!
